SANDWELL MB BIRMINGHAM CANAL
SO 99 SE
Netherton Tunnel Branch,
4/23 North Portal,
Netherton Tunnel (approx 130m
north east of Dudley Road West)
Entrance to canal tunnel. Opened 1858. Brick with sandstone keystone.
Round arch has moulded arch band. Flanking walls battered and of concave
plan. Parapet has brick coping. The Dudley Canal was amalgamated with the
Birmingham Canal Navigations in 1846, and the Netherton Tunnel was subsequently
built to improve links between the two systems. It is 3027 yards long and is
unusual because of its late date and because of its width: it has two towpaths.
It was lit by gas and later by electricity.
